Draft Strategy Children and Young People 2018 - 2023
Rockingham’s children and young people are valued community members who can contribute to the growth of an inclusive, participatory, diverse, strong and healthy community. With the community aspiring for Rockingham to be a strong community as identified within the Strategic Community Plan 2015 – 2025, there is a need to identify how to build strong children and young people, so that they can in turn contribute to a ‘strong community’.
The City of Rockingham, as a local government authority provides the most significant potential to influence the community to value and support early years and families. To address this the City in consultation with the community has prepared the draft Community Plan Strategy for Children and Young People 2018 –2023.
The purpose of this strategy is to provide children, families and young people with opportunities to develop their skills in relation to education, employment, recreation, creativity, positive parenting, healthy lifestyles and relationships and leadership as well as connect to, participate in and contribute to our community.
The City will focus on strong partnerships with the local not-for-profit sector and the development appropriate infrastructure to support the aims of this strategy.
